Item 1.01            Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On December 13, 2009, Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. (“ACS”) entered into Amendment No. 1 (the “Amendment”) to the Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), dated as of September 27, 2009, among Xerox Corporation (“Xerox”), Boulder Acquisition Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Xerox, and ACS.

The Amendment amends the Merger Agreement to, among other things, include a non-waivable “majority of the minority” vote approval requirement (the “Minority Approval”). For purposes of the Minority Approval, the affirmative vote of holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of ACS Class A common stock that are not held, directly or indirectly, by holders of ACS Class B common stock, voting as a single, separate class, will be required to adopt the Merger Agreement.

The Amendment was signed in accordance with a Stipulation and Proposed Order, dated as of December 13, 2009, among Xerox, ACS, plaintiffs and other parties named in a class action filed by ACS shareholders in the Delaware Court of Chancery related to Xerox’s proposed acquisition of ACS (the “Merger”), in which plaintiffs agreed not to take any action to prevent or delay the Merger from closing.
 
The description contained in this Item 1.01 of certain terms of the Amendment and the transactions contemplated thereby is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1 and incorporated herein by reference. The Merger Agreement was filed as Exhibit 2.1 to ACS’s Current Report on Form
8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 29, 2009, and is incorporated herein by reference.
 
Additional Information

The proposed merger transaction involving Xerox and ACS will be submitted to the respective stockholders of Xerox and ACS for their consideration. In connection with the proposed merger, Xerox filed with the SEC a registration statement on Form S-4 that included a preliminary joint proxy statement of Xerox and ACS that also constitutes a preliminary prospectus of Xerox and each of the companies may be filing with the SEC other documents regarding the proposed transaction. ACS will mail the definitive joint proxy statement/prospectus to its stockholders. Xerox and ACS urge investors and security holders to read the definitive joint proxy statement/prospectus regarding the proposed transaction before making any voting or investment decision when it becomes available because it will contain important information. You may obtain a free copy of the joint proxy statement/prospectus, as well as other filings containing information about Xerox and ACS, without charge, at the SEC’s Internet site (http://www.sec.gov). Copies of the definitive joint proxy statement/prospectus and the filings with the SEC that will be incorporated by reference in the definitive joint proxy statement/prospectus can also be obtained, when available, without charge, from Xerox’s website, www.xerox.com, under the heading “Investor Relations” and then under the heading “SEC Filings”. You may also obtain these documents, without charge, from ACS’s website, www.acs-inc.com, under the tab “Investor Relations” and then under the heading “SEC Filings”.

Xerox, ACS and their respective directors, executive officers and certain other members of management and employees may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from the respective stockholders of Xerox and ACS in favor of the merger. Information regarding the persons who may, under the rules of the SEC, be deemed participants in the solicitation of the respective stockholders of Xerox and ACS in connection with the proposed merger are set forth in the preliminary joint proxy statement/prospectus filed with the SEC. You can find information about Xerox’s executive officers and directors in its definitive proxy statement filed with the SEC on April 6, 2009. You can find information about ACS’s executive officers and directors in its annual report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on August 27, 2009.
